hello all,
My A4K case took a bit of a beating via a courier so i thought i'd try to tart it up a little.
I bought some modellers plastic putty, this stuff is great, it is white in colour and dries stone hard!
so fill hole, let it dry, using some P1200 grit sandpaper sand and shape the filler to match the original contours, then paint over, that's it, job done

cheers, JuvUK

damn those careless courriers, I have received packages under layers of foam that could not survive the "evil courriers of +5 damage"
nice job Juv!

Now you only need a bit of matte spray to shape the floppy and CD bezels to match this lovely looking tower.

Great job, Juzzer. I'm impressed!

thanks rkauer, those drives were beige and i thought painting them gloss would be a good contrast, but i think you're right and satin black would look better :cool:

indeed nice job, learning here a lot:roll: did you learn by having car issues:p (only joking)

Is the spray for the case used not matched with the cdrom? I had strange results with spraying a case and a dvd rom too with the same paint.:whistle:
